User Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (Windows NT 5.1; rv:13.0) Gecko/20100101 Firefox/13.0.1 Build ID: 20120614114901 Steps to reproduce: * create a Windows user containing accents in its name ( ex: "Propriétaire" (aka "Owner") is the default user name in French, so its really frequent ), and launch Firefox with this user. * Re-open an existing indexedDB database Actual results: Trying to reopen the database will raise an exception with errorCode 1 (unknown error) Same issue than in https://bugzilla.mozilla.org/show_bug.cgi?id=766489 Expected results: The database should open correctly. Details : The error comes from the "UpdateQuotaInformationForFile" function in http://hg.mozilla.org/releases/mozilla-beta/file/c92edb5a0ac2/storage/src/mozStorageService.cpp#l923 int rc = ::sqlite3_quota_file(PromiseFlatCString(path).get()); Here, the result code returned by sqlite is an error (unable to open the file), so I first thought that the issue was from sqlite. I built a simple test case to test the sqlite code, and I could reproduce the bug : int rc = ::sqlite3_quota_file("C:\Documents and Settings\Proprietaire\...path to the indexedb sqlite file..."); // SUCCESS int rc = ::sqlite3_quota_file("C:\Documents and Settings\Propriétaire\...path to the indexedb sqlite file..."); // FAILS IF NOT IN UTF 8, SUCCESS IF IN UTF-8 So, sqlite expects utf8 filenames in the sqlite3_quota_file and sqlite3_quota_set calls (lines 905 and 923) So I don't know which encoding is PromiseFlatCString(path).get() in, but we should convert it to UTF-8 before making the sqlite code. This makes no difference unless you have accents in the path of the firefox Profile, but fails for most French users :(
Jan or Kyle, can you poke around a little here before I get back from the east coast? Would be good to know what's going wrong here.
I think we need to change GetNativePath() to GetPath() and then convert the path to UTF8
Any update ? It's a very common bug on computers of non-English-speaking people. IndexedDB should not ship unprefixed before it has been fixed.
quite annoying bug for us, a lot of our users have to create another windows username without any accent. Is there another workaround ? Can we do something to help ?
Jonas doesn't think this is critical (or affecting?) B2G so blocking- for Basecamp.
With that fix the entire IndexedDB test suite that we have passes when run from a profile directory on a user named 'Propriétaire'.
Though, it turns out our test suite can never hit the scenario in this bug, because it requires restarting the browser, so that's not a very useful test.
Backed out because of Linux opt Moth orange: https://hg.mozilla.org/integration/mozilla-inbound/rev/d6716083397b Example log: https://tbpl.mozilla.org/php/getParsedLog.php?id=15355150&tree=Mozilla-Inbound

Kyle, please reland if you think that's appropriate, I'm not sure what needs to be done here :/
It doesn't look to me like it was the least bit intermittent, it looks like it failed on every single Linux32 run which started between 14:30 and 15:30 (or, ran that test between some times after those). Relanded in https://hg.mozilla.org/integration/mozilla-inbound/rev/9404e57a5ce6.
Comment on attachment 663026 [details] [diff] [review] As landed [Approval Request Comment] Bug caused by (feature/regressing bug #): Was in the original indexedDB implementation (in Firefox 4) User impact if declined: IndexedDB will not work properly on Windows machines where the username has non-ASCII characters. At the very least, the default username in the French locale hits this bug. Testing completed (on m-c, etc.): Landed on m-c. Risk to taking this patch (and alternatives if risky): Very low risk patch. We just get the unicode path in two places where we used to get the path in the system codepage. String or UUID changes made by this patch: None.
Comment on attachment 663026 [details] [diff] [review] As landed [Triage Comment] Approving for Aurora 17 due to the risk evaluation, and Beta 16 due to the unprefixing in bug 726378.
While trying to reproduce this: 1. Go to http://www.html5rocks.com/en/tutorials/indexeddb/todo/ 2. Load the html example in FF 3. Press the button Actual results: nothing happens Not the same result in Chrome.
I've tested this on Nightly 2012-09-04 before the fix: 1. Create user "Propriétaire" 2. Open http://jensarps.github.com/IDBWrapper/example/index/ in FF 3. Add some random customers 4. Set FF to remember tabs and windows from last time 5. Restart FF 6. Click again to add a customer Actual results: The DB won't open. "Unknown error" in error console Tested again on FF 17b6. The DB is not automatically opened after restart, but the list shows up after clicking to add a new customer. I'm considering this verified fixed.
